Hi. When my dog had a similar problem I put this liquid called "TCP" on the wound area. It's a strong smelling and not great tasting antiseptic. You
can gargle with it if you have a sore throat and it helps make it better and you can use it for cuts and such.
Anyway I asked my friend who works as a vet and she said to just water it down a little and dab it round the area. The smell is pretty strong for
humans so for dogs it's a lot stronger plus as I said it's got a nasty taste to it. My dog never touched her leg after that.
It might not work as well for you but that's what I used so thought I'd let you know.
Isn't TCP a cleaning chemical?
Would that not be highly toxic and kill the pet?
You had me worried that others would use a toxin, but the TCP suggested is an antiseptic in England and elsewhere, and actually has a Wikipedia
en.wikipedia.org...(antiseptic) First listing under the second section, "Medicine and Drugs"
People should not, of course, use a cleaning chemical on their dogs. Thanks for pointing that out.
